Help Educate Your Child about Women’s History Month with 6 Fun Activities

Written by your friends at bümo.

"Starting these conversations at an early age will greatly benefit your child, as well as the society around them."

Women across the globe have made and continue to make such an incredible impact on society. Throughout history, women have endured countless hardships and challenges, yet in spite of these, have risen above and continue to thrive and fight for equality. This month, make sure to set aside some time to help educate your child about amazing women so that they understand the importance of celebrating their mom, friends, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, caretakers, teachers, and any other influential women in their lives!

1. Get to know some important figures.

Allow your little one to choose an important woman to look up and learn about. It can be through a book, a movie, or even a web search—let your child be the one to choose and they’ll be more likely to want to learn. It’s incredibly important that they see the kinds of huge contributions that women have made to history, as well as understand that women can be and do anything they choose to. We recommend looking at figures like Malala Yousafzai, Michelle Obama, Effa Manley, Sonia Sotomayor, Bessie Coleman, Dolores Huerta, Gloria Steinem, Rosa Parks, Frida Kahlo, or anyone else your child chooses.

2. Check out women in the arts.

The National Museum of Women in the Arts offers a host of online exhibits and activities for your child to check out. Researching has made us realize that there should be at least one museum about women in every major city in America, but that’s a battle for another day. For now, as we can’t visit in person, the website is a great fix to help your child learn. It’s incredibly important for them to see the huge span of creative women that make art.

3. Read a book about important historical female figures.

Besides some of our favorite classic children’s books with strong female characters (check out Matilda if you haven’t yet) there are many beautifully illustrated children’s books to teach your little ones about often-overlooked women in history. Check out Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History, for example, which profiles women who managed to be fearless trailblazers in a world that didn’t accept them, while Women in Science—50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World features the women in science who have been forgotten. Other favorites include Fantastically Great Women Who Made History, Shaking Things Up: 14 Young Women Who Changed the World, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, and finally the Little People, Big Dreams Series.

4. Check out this wonderful interactive Women’s History page.

BrainPOP has an interactive website that your children can use to learn about important women. We adore this website for its huge collection that can support any child’s interest, as well as for its fun explanation videos that will keep your child engaged, entertained, and learning all at the same time. There are Graphic Organizers, fun Quizzes and Worksheets, and even challenges for each and every famous woman. The best part? Your child can choose who they want to look at. Check out everyone from Oprah to Cleopatra to Amelia Earhart.

5. Get your little one into women of science.

Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn about computer science—it is the future after all. About 40% of students have accounts on Code.org, and 20 million of their students are bright young women. Women in STEM are often forgotten. It can seem like math and science are simply not for girls—but that has never been true and never will be. Allow your child to learn about some of the  foundational building blocks of coding with this site, teaching them even if something looks complicated from the outside, they are smart enough to tackle it.

6. Send thank you notes to the strong women in your life.

With this one, kids get to practice gratitude, feminism, manners, penmanship, and even their mailing skills all in one go! Plus, the woman on the receiving end is likely to treasure the note forever. It’s a win-win. Have your kids write down a list of all the strong women in their lives; then write out the qualities that make them strong. Set them up with paper, crayons, etc. and let them start thank you note-ing!

Encouraging your child to learn about women’s role in history is essential so that they understand the importance of championing the women in their lives. Starting these conversations at an early age will greatly benefit your child, as well as the society around them. Regardless of your child’s gender, embracing the power and ability of women everywhere will have such a profound impact on their development and the role that they play in the lives of others.
